  • Fourth win for Lady Bears

    The Spencer County Lady Bears got their fourth win in a rough season Thursday night when they topped Eminence, 41-20 on the road.

    Spencer County jumped out to a big first-quarter lead and never looked back.

    Defense keyed the lopsided win, as Spencer County held the Lady Warriors to just seven first-half points as they led 32-7 at the break.

    Coach Daniel Cox inserted many subs in the second half and the Lady Bears were able to get some playing experience for other girls while collecting the win.

  • Point guard play was "...

    John Wall meet Bob Cousy. Godfather of point guards who was defining take charge play and being The Game’s prime take-over-guy before Wall’s dad was out of diapers.

    Wall, Devan Downey and other gifted and cocksure playmakers would do well to look up the gold standard man. Point guard who pioneered the way to fame and fortune awaiting today’s take-over game types.

    A showman from Gotham City to Beantown, Cousy was cut from a high school team once and encouraged at Holy Cross College to minimize the fancy stuff.

  • Talley signs with University of...

    Spencer County High School track star Chelsey Talley signed to run competitively for University of the Cumberlands in Williamsburg, Ky.

    On hand to help Talley celebrate her partial athletic scholarship to the university were her parents, Shelley (front, left) and Bill (front, right) Talley. Also in attendance at last Thursday’s event were U of C track and cross country coach Floyd Stroud (seated, second from right), SCHS Principal Jocelyn Lyons and Assistant Principal Dale Kleinjohn.

  • Bears hit a rough patch in season

    It would take a pessimist of the first order to call the 2009-10 season anything but a success for the Spencer County Bears boys basketball team. But those who dwell on the negative can point to the past couple of weeks to make their argument as the Bears have dropped five of their last six games, including their last three.

  • Lady Bears drop close game to...

    The Spencer County Lady Bears aren’t sporting an impressive record, but they continue to battle through a tough season and on more than one occasion have come up just shy of notching a few more victories.

    Friday night was just another example as they fell in a 54-51 decision at home to Henry County.

    Spencer County built an early four point lead after one quarter, 12-8, but the two teams battled basket for basket the rest of the way. Henry County was able to cut into the lead and trailed by just one at the break, 21-20.

  • March is right around the corner

    The best words that came from the radio for most school children Tuesday morning may have been the announcement that the snow and ice had cancelled classes in the county. But for me, my heart skipped a beat when I heard that pitchers and catchers were to be reporting to spring training on February 16. Forget flowers.What signals spring for me is the chance to catch the sound of Marty Brenneman on the radio broadcasting a Reds’ game from spring training – which this year will take place in Arizona.

  • Bears record 14-5

    Logan Dunbar looks for a way to the basket in Thursday’s matchup with Western Hills. The visiting Wolverines defeated the Bears 86-73 in the game, but Spencer County still sports an impressive 14-5 record on the season.

  • DeMarcus Cousins second pick in...

    DeMarcus Cousins. School is in, and school will soon be out for Kentucky’s precocious big fella. Right? Maybe not.

    ESPN’s Jimmy ‘gaga’ Dykes, already suffering from acute John Wall Swoon, unilaterally promoted Cousins last week to second pick overall in Moneyball’s June draft. Tall stuff for a kid one year removed from high school senior English.

  • Bears lose heartbreaker to...

    When considering the Spencer County Bears’ 14-4 record this year, some fans look back to last year, when the young squad struggled to find six wins all season. Other fans look forward to next season, when this team with no seniors will be older, more experienced and ready to challenge.

    Hopefully, a growing number of fans are enjoying the present, and realizing that this is a team that right now can compete in their district and the 8th region and they don’t have to wait until next season.
